by MAGNET GALLERIES MELBOURNE

Magnet Galleries, a not-for-profit, is designed to draw together people with an interest in and a passion for photography, to share their knowledge, experience and aspirations and gain new insights and expertise. The exhibition is an intimate account of life on the Western Front, seen through the eyes of a young man more interested in and enamoured of the arts of peace than in the horrors of war.
